Biodegradable shoe takes cue from Amazon

Biodegradable shoe takes cue from AmazonIN the Amazon, slipping on shoes is as simple as painting a thin layer of latex on an individual’s feet.
Based on this concept, Spanish firm One Moment has developed a 2 mm thick biodegradable shoe
made by injecting natural biopolymers, similar to latex, into a mould. The elastic, biodegradable material moulds on to the foot and rolls up for easy storage. The shoe is hand and machine washable. Once it has outlived its purposeful life, the shoe can decompose.

According to the company, internationally certified biopolymers are used for the shoe suitable for travelling, walking and for sports activities. It is now available in 35 countries.(PRA)
